Bronze Age Remains Found in Russia

Bronze Age archeological monuments have been found at one of the road construction sites near the town of Vladimir (Russia). The builders reported about the finding to archeologists of the State Centre for Protection and Registration of Monuments. According to the head of Archeological Service of the Centre Larisa Galchuk, the findings are unique, as it is for the first time that Bronze Age relics have been found in Vladimir region. In Russia, metallurgical centers for bronze are located far from this region: in the Urals and Siberia. The finding reveals that there existed long trading routes and relations. Archeologists together with the road builders have found there remains of a big residential construction, with the total area of 150 meters.
